Just moved to SLC and looking to get into the wide. 

Wondering about recommendations for areas & routes that are beginner friendly for TR and lead. 

Specifically looking to practice heel toeing and squeeze, but up for anything!

Any thoughts or opinions would be greatly appreciated.

My friends put together a blog post with some pretty good information for an odub bouldering circuit in LCC.

Burner and Firestarter are pretty fun at this buttress.

Intro wide vibe.

Pitch 2 is wide. You could do the last pitch of The Green Adjective as well.

You can practice your runnering as well as heel toe. 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
